Given a word → generate all its related words (synonyms) and show its connections (how these words are related).

    Is open-source truly a requirement, as the tag indicates? Apr 11, 2015 at 5:13

    You need to define what you mean by "related". This could be anything from stemming, synonyms to translations in other languages.

  • @RockPaperLizard: open-source is preferable. LukasGraf: the relation here is synonyms.

  • @Nariman: Then what do you mean with "connections" if the related words should be synonyms? Wouldn’t a simple list of synonyms be sufficient? -- And for which language(s)?
